Night before last I decided to try garlic on some painful corns on the bottom outside of my foot. I cut a thin slice of a raw clove and tore off pieces about the same size as the corns. I put a slice on each corn and secured in place with band-aids.
In the morning I changed the garlic and band-aids and already the corns were softening. I also noted an analgesic effect from the cloves. In the evening I changed them again and the core of the most long-standing corn came out easily when I tugged on it leaving a small crater. Now tonight all three corns are small craters and I am not sure how much longer I should use the garlic and will it help make granulation tissue? If anyone knows please advise.
Also using garlic with good results so far for gum disease. Thanks all and Earth Clinic.
